Wethersfield Parents, Guardians and Community Members - Please join us in a conversation with Mr. Rais Bhuiyan. His tale of empathy and kindness in the face of hate and personal attack will inspire.  Rais will also be joining SDMS students and families for the day on January 22. 2018 to share his story and life's journey.

Rais Bhuiyan, an American Muslim from Bangladesh, is an extraordinary individual with a powerful story. After serving as an air force pilot in Bangladesh, Rais moved to the United States in 1999 to study computer technology. Ten days after 9/11, Rais was the victim of a horrific hate crime, attacked by, Mark Stroman, self-described “the Arab slayer,” Rais barely survived. Sadly, two other victims were killed. Stroman was sentenced to death; ten years later, Rais led an international campaign, fighting to save Stroman’s life. Rais’ near death experience sparked a profound journey of soul searching and began his path as a human rights activist for peace, forgiveness, empathy and understanding. Though Rais’ effort to save Stroman from execution in 2011 was unsuccessful, his transformative ability to turn hate into compassion and forgive the unforgivable has been transformative. Through his non-profit, World Without Hate, Rais has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people as he shares his inspirational story and message at schools, universities, organizations and conferences all over the world.

Once again, the WHS Computer Science students would like to invite kids in grades 4 - 8 and their parents or guardians to the WHS Family Hour of Code. The event will be in Room 402 at WHS on Thursday, December 7, from 7 - 8 PM (but you can arrive as early as 6:30 to avoid waiting in line). This is part of the world-wide "Hour of Code" celebration happening in December. You and your kids will be writing computer code to create colorful, noisy programs. You don't have to know anything at all about computer code; that's the point! We guarantee you will write your first code in ten minutes or less, and have fun doing it. You will be assisted by current and former WHS Comp Sci students, who will help every step of the way. Please click for more.
